    President Donald Trump has ordered a review into whether sanctions against Tehran should be reinstated.

    US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Tehran the world's "leading state-sponsor of terrorism".

    Iran's foreign minister says the US should concentrate on meeting its own obligations under the 2015 nuclear deal, instead of raising accusations against the Islamic Republic.
